This Marriott is located in the Research Triangle, just off Interstate 40 and a few miles/exits from Fitness Connection and Umstead Park. It's a medium-sized hotel with 6 floors, 223 rooms, and serves the business customer well. Free airport shuttle service, complimentary high speed internet, soft bedding, mini fridge and coffeemaker all await. Along with room service, there is a restaurant onsite.
The in-house gym stocks an adequate choice for the athletic-minded traveler. For those looking for more, we recommend driving the 5-minutes to Fitness Connection. It's just a couple exits up I-40 and costs $10/day. Umstead Park is a little farther, but it sure beats running inside Marriott's exercise room when the weather is nice!
The pool is pure leisure.
